January 2019, Trey started complaining of severe side pain. Within a week, his life was turned upside down. Ct Scan showed ugly tumors all in the lower abdominal area, sides, liver, lymph nodes in his chest and neck. He was admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital on his 20th birthday. DSRCT is a rare and aggressive Sarcoma, generally seen in young males ages 10 to 30 years old. However, there have been cases of young females too. Sadly, unknown to most ( including myself at that time ) very little funding goes to research and education for his cancer. His treatments have consisted of older chemotherapy drugs that have been around for over 40 years. We need research for newer treatments with better outcome and not as harsh effects. I need your help in spreading awareness of this cancer and how little funding goes to finding a cure for it!
Please help support this LOCAL cause as the proceeds will go to research at Siteman Cancer Center, BJC Hospital, Washington University Medical and Dr. Brian VanTine’s Sarcoma Research.
I've registered for the STL Cure Sarcoma 6K to raise much needed funding for research, education and advocacy. Please support my efforts by stepping with me, making a donation to my page, or sharing this page to create awareness
